Fall of wickets: 1-9 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 1.2 ov), 2-111 (Usman Ghani, 11.6 ov), 3-119 (Karim Janat, 14.1 ov), 4-154 (Najibullah Zadran, 16.6 ov), 5-171 (Mohammad Nabi, 18.3 ov)
1.2 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, caught behind, Ngarava has taken the big wicket of Gurbaz! Shorter ball this time around off, takes it away with the angle, there's goof bounce with the bowler's height and Gurbaz pokes to edge it for a simple catch to the keeper. Zimbabwe will be delighted with this!. 9/1
16.6 to Najibullah Zadran, finds long-off and he's gone! Full ball, struck straight down long-off's throat as Burl first came in a couple of steps and then realised he had to stay back. Took it comfortably in the end. 154/4
18.3 to Mohammad Nabi, slower ball gets the better of Nabi, he's holed out to deep square leg. Slow and short, Nabi was early into the pull and gets a leading edge which is taken easily by Musakanda. 171/5
11.6 to Usman Ghani, caught at short fine leg! Ghani was going well there after a scratchy start and he's gone just one short of fifty. Short of length towards the hips, he tucked it uppishly and Muzarabani did well to dive to his right with both hands to grab it nicely. 111/2
14.1 to Karim Janat, Burl is pumped and thumps his chest because he's got the big wicket of Janat, knocks over his leg stump. It was a nice and slow legbreak on leg, Janat wanted a few runs and went for the sweep but a bit too early and missed it completely. 119/3

TOTAL17.1 Ov (RR: 8.62)148
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, 0.1 ov), 2-11 (Sean Williams, 1.2 ov), 3-27 (Wessly Madhevere, 2.4 ov), 4-44 (Tarisai Musakanda, 5.1 ov), 5-56 (Sikandar Raza, 6.3 ov), 6-118 (Richmond Mutumbami, 13.3 ov), 7-141 (Ryan Burl, 16.1 ov), 8-142 (Brandon Mavuta, 16.3 ov), 9-148 (Donald Tiripano, 16.6 ov), 10-148 (Blessing Muzarabani, 17.1 ov)
0.1 to TS Kamunhukamwe, loud appeal for lbw, given out, and it's hit the batsman's back leg really hard and injured him! Kamunhukamwe is on the ground and looks in real pain, the physio has the ice bag on the knee. Naveen brought the ball in sharply from just outside off, and Kamunhukamwe opened his stance to swing it to the leg side, exposing his stumps and the back lag, and the ball went on to strike he back knee because the bent leg pulled the pad down. 0/1
2.4 to W Madhevere, and Madhevere has thrown it away by miscuing this short and wide delivery to point for the easiest of catches. Lots of room on offer, he chases it and hardly got the middle as two fielders converged at point with four hands but eventually two took it. 27/3
1.2 to SC Williams, swings across the line, misses it completely and he's bowled! Goes down on a knee for a big sweep, nowhere close to it and he loses his off stump. And Nabi has taken a wicket in T20Is after as many as 12 wicketless innings. 11/2
13.3 to R Mutumbami, and a wicket straightaway after the mini-break, Mutumbami's reverse-sweep costs him as he's trapped in front of the off stump! Goes for the reverse, misses the offbreak from outside off and replays show it may have actually hit him just outside the line, looks touch and go. 118/6
5.1 to TK Musakanda, holes out straight to long-on. Musakanda wants to accelerate in the last over of the powerplay and he lofts this length ball down the ground, straight to Najibullah. 44/4
6.3 to Sikandar Raza, it's the bouncer that works against Raza and Hamza takes a really good catch at the deep square leg boundary. Quick bouncer from Ahmad hurried onto Raza who was late on the hook, bit of a top edge flew towards the deep where Hamza took a couple of steps back quickly and catch it with both arms over his head, just inside the boundary line. 56/5
17.1 to B Muzarabani, pintpoint yorker and that's all over for Zimbabwe. Afghanistan wrap up a 45-run victory and win the series, with a 2-0 lead. The yorker was right on the base of off stump and Muzarabani had no answer for it. 148/10
16.1 to RP Burl, and Rashid has the last laugh as Burl holes out to deep midwicket. Pitched up slightly outside off and Burl goes for another slog-sweep, can't get the distance this time and he's caught well inside the boundary. 141/7
16.3 to B Mavuta, two wickets in three balls from Rashid and Bavuta holes out to long-on! It wasn't quite the length to be swept but he went for it, that too down the ground and couldn't send it too far. 142/8
16.6 to DT Tiripano, misses the reverse sweep and loses his off stump! Straight-is quick delivery on off, he goes for the reverse and misses it completely to be the third wicket of the over. 148/9
